Get a revealing, behind-the-scenes look at local MC and producer Blueprint—a pivotal figure in Columbus’s hip-hop scene—with this new, self-portrait documentary. In King No Crown, Blueprint captures the ups and downs of being an independent artist during the release of his most recent album of the same title.
